MacAddict collect? Missing some

Hi Falstaff (and others?),

I am interested in a collection of MacAddict CD's. I've got about 70% now but looking for the remainder.

I can't PM yet because I only have two of five (now three) posts. But I think you can PM me if you see this.

Please let me know if you are willing to trade or share your extras. Esp. trying to determine when the paper sleeves stopped and restarted, and also how many "Special" CD-ROMs were made.

A lot of it is OS7, 8 & 9 stuff but there is some OS X stuff (games, utilities and trial software) as well. I also have an almost double set of Mac Cube cd set from Aztech software. Though it's all OS7 stuff on them.

Let me know and pm me a mailing address and I'll send them too you.

I really meant that offer to the creators of the powerpc software database. Before I make any decision otherwise, I really need to hear from them.

Does anyone happen to have a copy of the Mathematica 6 or 7 trial or installer DVD/DMG?

I wanted to give everyone an update on how this is coming. I have gathered about 200 applications to put online. They will be put on the server. We will then have to add categories, descriptions, authors, URLs, external mirrors, etc. If you can help with this and have an account at the archive, please PM me.

As for the error messages that are pulled up, I hope to resolve that by the end of the week.

You know, I like that you show the files but you cannot download until you register. Keep it like that

Sorry, I should be way more clear. I manually activated your account a while back. I will send out emails to everyone who has registered thus far.

However, you say that you can't log in. I will investigate this.

OK, you should be able to log in. I am working right now to fix the email issues.

This may help.

You can get the last macaddict cd 125 at

http://archive.org/download/macaddic...25_2007_01.iso

I'd suggest getting that one first because it has the cumulative MacAddict CD Catalog (1-125) inside. The program to open this file is DiskTracker but if you have an intel mac, use the latest version from their website, not the one on the CD: http://www.disktracker.com/download.shtml

The MacAddict CD Catalog from cd125 contains the complete list of contents of all the MacAddict CDs. I converted it to text and it went to over 4000 pages in 9 point! I think I prefer the DiskTracker version.

You used to be able to get the macaddict cds 1-50 at http ://www.mediafire.com/oldmacarchive

but it seems to be down now

Issues 51, 93-95, 111-116 are at http://archive.org/browse.php?collec...ive&field=year

Look in years 2000 and 2004-2006 for these.

Thank you. I'll try to log in today.

Just uncompress once they are all downloaded and mount or burn the resultant toast image file.

Just click on oldmacarchive\cd-roms\macaddict

and you will find them there.

Very cool! I wasn't aware of this repository for the c d's. Thanks for sharing this very useful url.

When registering, users get an error and do not receive a registration email so I have to activate all accounts manually.

1-80, 82, 84-88, 100, 119-125 have also just been added to archive.org as well:

http://archive.org/search.php?query=...rt=-publicdate

There used to be a torrent for 1-110 but it's gone dead. No seeds!!! (and 18 missing i.e., 5, 67, 74, 111-125)

These cd archives however are now nearly matching the old torrent (21 missing i.e., 81, 83, 89-92, 96-99, 101-110, 117)

So if you can dig out your old macaddict cds and see if you have 81, 83, 89-92, 96-99, 101-110, 117 it'd be really good if you can image and upload so that we can finally have them ALL online! (despite the old torrent going dead)

I'll see what I have when I get home tonight.

missing Sleeves (and CDs) of MacAddict #77 (2003)+

As noted the first batch went out on archive.org. Sleeves not scanned yet but I guess it was figured it was better to get them out early.

Still missing sleeves for 2003+ although I can't confirm if anyone actually has them -- i.e. if they were made.

I'm hoping to get 2003-2005 in a week or so which will leave 2006 and the following missing:
- Ultra iMac Pak
- Ultimate How-To Disc
- 5th Anniversary DVD

(I have Super Software Pak 3 )

As noted above some of these are available online but I would still like to get a physical copy to keep consistent the ripping and scanning formats.

If anyone has one of those three discs above or 2006 set of discs, or any sleeves for 2003+ and are willing to loan or donate for eventual archive.org posting please PM me.

Thanks

Looked through my Mac Addict cds and I have just about all of them up to 107. Some I even have duplicates of.

MacAddict CD's with sleeves and without?

At what issue do the paper sleeves stop in your collection?

I am still looking for issues from 2003 and on with sleeves (or inserts if they were made that way at the end.) Can anyone donate those to me for archiving?

As noted these go to archive.org. I believe the allow deep linking too, which means that posting them there will benefit many different archiving sites.

Do you have a jewel case on any of yours? How about a Jewel Case insert? I think I've seen that pictured online for #125 but am not 100%. Perhaps the jewel case insert was shipped and they expected end users to use their own -?

Can you help me getting

Thanks. That will be good.

83, 91, 92, 101, 117 and special ultimate-how-to have now been added to

http://4unitmaths.com/macaddictcds.html

118 is already there too and 113-116, 119-124 are already on archive.org so this completes it for 2006.

Also, since http ://www.mediafire.com/oldmacarchive went dead I thought that it would be good to upload 1-50 again elsewhere as a backup.

However I since discovered that this won't be necessary because 1-56 are also on http://www.max1zzz.co.uk/servers.html

Impressive! Very nice! I have tons of PPC stuff I'd like to provide for the serve, including all the diagnostic and ASD's for all PowerPC machines. And for those with MDD machines, I have the original 6 disc set - a MUST for those with MDD machines who need that special OS 9 in order to boot natively.

81 and 89 are now on http://4unitmaths.com/macaddictcds.html and so this completes it for 2003.

So we now have 14 missing from 2004 and 2005 namely 90, 96-99, 102-110.

Hopefully some or all of these will also go up soon.
